This morning, Netflix hosted a global livestream event on the Netflix YouTube channel, where fans tuned in for an interactive experience that unlocked the first 15 Minutes of Zack Snyder’s eagerly-anticipated Netflix Film, ARMY OF THE DEAD.
Following a mission briefing by cast members Dave Bautista (My Spy, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1 & 2), and Matthias Schweighöfer (What A Man, The Most Beautiful Day), it was revealed that the opening sequence of the film was buried (literally) in an underground vault deep in the Mojave Desert outside of Las Vegas.
The fans who participated from around the world were tasked with flooding the comments function in the livestream chat, which powered a massive bulldozer and crane to lift the multi-ton safe containing the first 15 minutes of ARMY OF THE DEAD from the earth. Ella Purnell (“Belgravia”, “Sweetbitter”), Omari Hardwick (Sorry To Bother You, Nobody’s Fool), Ana De La Reguera (Cowboys & Aliens, “Narcos”), Nora Arnezeder (What The Day Owes The Night, Safe House), Tig Notaro (“Star Trek: Discovery”, Lucy in the Sky), and more were also on hand to encourage fans. When the vault was finally opened, Zack Snyder himself congratulated the group on their accomplishments and introduced the sneak peek of his newest zombie-heist film.
Audiences will now only have 32 hours to watch the unforgettable beginning of ARMY OF THE DEAD on the Netflix YouTube channel, the same amount of time that Scott Ward (Dave Bautista) and his crew have to break into zombie-infested Las Vegas to retrieve the $200 million sitting in a vault beneath the strip before the city is nuked. This first 15 minutes of ARMY OF THE DEAD on the Netflix YouTube channel will self-destruct at 7:00pmPT on Friday, May 14.
ARMY OF THE DEAD will hit select theaters on Friday, May 14, and Netflix on Friday, May 21.
